31: On Writing Therapy For Mental Health

Writing therapy is one of the core components of my ongoing mental health plan. When I feel a build up of mental pressure - I write!

The page listens and does not judge, and therefore you can tell it anything without fear. Writing enables me to collect, organise and express my thoughts. By writing them down, I am able to detach from them and let them go.

From there, I often turn those pages into a poem or piece of fiction Links to the pieces read: Saying Goodbye & Creating A Monster
